My brother’s wedding is in 8 days & I still haven’t found shoes or a clutch to match my dress.

But, today…. I think I found THE shoes. Purple killer 3.5 inch heels, extremely hot & suprisingly comfy!

I haven’t worn a dress in 10 years so I suppose I should go all out 😀

I’ve never been to Wagamama before but everytime I walk past it, I keep remembering to go in! So many times I’ve wanted to try it but then friends/family wanted to go elsewhere…. until today!

I took mom out for an early dinner & decided today was the day. The food was amazing, everything on the menu sounded so good & we couldn’t help but stare at everyone’s dish as they got them too!

I ordered Teriyaki Soba Beef which is grilled teriyaki beef on a bed of teppan fried soba noodles with curry oil, mangetout, chillies, red and spring onions, beansprouts and bok choi with teriyaki sauce, coriander and sesame seeds. It was amazing! The beef was so tender, the noodles had a great taste to them with just the right amount of chilli, I will be definately ordering this again! I couldn’t finish it all because mom & I had 2 scoops of Baskin Robbins before going for dinner so I got them to wrap it up in a little takeaway box for me & will happily be munching away the leftovers at work tomorrow afternoon 😉

Mom got Ebi Raisukaree which is prawns stir-fried in a coconut and lime curry sauce with mangetout, peppers, red and spring onions served on sticky white rice and garnished with red chillies, coriander and lime. I actually wanted to order this dish as well as it sounded amazing but decided on the Teriyaki Soba Beef, but we decided to share the dishes so we could try both. Mom’s was amazing, the sauce was amazing & I’m a sucker for prawns and chillies *drool*

We also got some Ebi Gyoza on the side which is deep-fried prawn and vegetable dumplings served with a spicy citrus ponzu dipping sauce, these were so yummy & complimented the dishes well! They didn’t last long though, we gobbled them within seconds 😀

So there you have it, my first Wagamama experience & now I want to eat through the entire menu :party:

A few weeks ago I got a package sent to me from JML with silver & caramel EZ Combs to test out on my hair. I remember seeing an advert on the shopping channel about these & my mom telling me I should get them to keep my hair tidy at work but I wasn’t so sure about them. When the chance came to test them out for free, I couldn’t wait!

My hair is naturally thick, long & wavy… some days it’s nice & pretty, the next it’s a big messy ball of fluff only good for tying up in a ponytail. It gets annoying at times but I got used to it after all these years!

So then, I get sent the EZ Combs. With one clip you can try 8 different up-do’s which are not only instant but easy to use, as well as being comfortable on your scalp! The website states:

Whether your hair is long, short, thick, thin, curly or in cornrows, the comfortable design gives you the flexibility to create dozens of different looks. And because of the fine beaded detail, Ez Combs mean you can add a touch of sparkle to any outfit, casual or formal! Unlike claw clips and hair bobbles, Ez Combs lays flat and conform to the curve of the head. Leave it in when you take a nap, and you’ll sleep comfortably and wake with your hair still in place!

* Twin pack black and sandalwood or bronze and silver
* Soft and comfortable
* Works for all hair types
* Holds hair firmly in place
* Includes a step-by-step styling guide
* Also available in twin-pack bronze and silver

Try these amazing looks
1. Classic
2. Up-do
3. Fountain effect
4. Butterfly twist
5. Pony tail
6. Pony tail butterfly twist
7. French twist
8. French butterfly twist

When it was time to try them I was a little confused about what to do, it looked rather tricky & I was scared to stretch the beads incase I broke them but after a few tries, you realise that these babies are so flexible you can stretch them without the need to be scared of breaking them. This is good for people with really thick hair like myself!

I admit that I was useless when trying them out for the first time on myself & needed backup from my mom and she was the one who put my hair up in all the different styles (reminding me of being a little kid again lmao!). At first it was hard to stretch them wide enough to fit all my hair but after a while we were doing it no problem & it looked great!

Since then, I’ve managed to actually use them myself without any help, this may be because they have stretched a little and been broken in. As I’m typing this I am using the caramel comb in a fountain effect to keep my lump of fluff all need at tidy 😀

The first disaster try:

The follow up ones that were pretty nice:
